Contact - Silver Apples

   0 reviews  -  760 views
    Contact is the second studio album by American experimental electronic band Silver Apples, released in 1969 by record label Kapp.

    Bart Bealmear of AllMusic wrote, "Aside from Simeon's use of a banjo on a couple of tracks, the music on Contact does not differ from that of their debut. One aspect improved upon was the lyrics; many possess the same "cosmic" element found on Silver Apples, but others are full of bitterness, pain, paranoia and confusion. In turn, the lead oscillator is used to greater effect, reflecting this newfound intensity."

    Contact was released in 1969 by record label Kapp. The album was re-released in 1997 by MCA Records compiled with the band's first album, Silver Apples. It was also re-released illegally on compact disc and vinyl in 2003 by Radioactive Records in the UK.

    The cover and inner artwork is infamous for generating a lawsuit from Pan Am Airlines. The cover features the Silver Apples in a plane cockpit with drug paraphernalia, and the inner artwork showed the band among plane wreckage playing banjos. The resulting lawsuit by Pan Am against Silver Apples led to the breakup of the band.
